This book is a memoir by John Muir, one of the early discovers of Alaska. Regrettably, the book is uncompleted as Muir died before he completed it. Muir is called the father of environmentalism, and was instrumental in the movement to set aside land of the United States as wilderness. He was a naturalist, and revered nature as God's works, however, it seems likely he would not worship the traditional God. In his travels in Alaska, Muir encounters many adventures as he enjoys and studies the glaciers and mountains.
